COMBINE ALL THE ingredients in a saucepan, stir to dissolve the cornstarch, and bring to a boil. Immediately reduce the heat and simmer slowly, uncovered, for 5 minutes. Let the syrup cool for safety while pouring, and then pour it through a strainer, pressing down on the solids. Store covered in the refrigerator for up to 3 weeks.
